Re: I need opinions/help !
The CPU is better. Clock for clock, Haswell is about 10% better than IB, not to mention the 70/30 chance of a future upgrade path on the same socket. Turbo speeds aren't really in the equation since most only turbo to that speed on 1 or 2 cores tops.
The platform also is slightly more refined, which is also nice although not necessarily immediately benefiting you.
One thing I forgot to ask is, what is the purpose of the build? If this is just for gaming, you don't need 16GB of RAM right off the bat. You'd be better off investing in the better platform, and a more quality PSU like a Seasonic S1211 620w.
Are the parts still pretty decent? Yea, even an i5 2500k is still perfect for 99% of the tasks out there for regular consumers. Just the newer, better, faster is available for practically the same price (an FYI boards are the same price here give or take 5 USD which is where I got that from) so it makes sense to get that.
